My Wife & I stayed at the Panorama Hotel for 2 weeks in July, booked as a package with Thomas Cook. The Hotel is in a great location, built into the hills at the far end of Petra, on the road to Molyvos. The rooms are quite basic but very clean & comfortable. There is a charge for the air con & safe of around 50 euros a week, but well worth the cost as it was in the upper 30’s most days. Only downside was the quite useless shower & the shortage of clean towels & linen but it is Greece after all! We found the food to be of a good standard, & enjoyed the Friday night barbeque. The prices of the food & drink in the Hotel were quite reasonable. The beach at Petra along from the Hotel is good, but there is a strip of rocks to negotiate in the shallows before you got out to the sand, so beach shoes are essential. The town of Petra is typically Greek with a few really good tavernas, all were reasonably priced & the quality of food was very good. The nearby town of Anaxos consists of a selection of Tavernas & a really nice beach; we got there on the local motorised train that runs to Molyvos via Petra, which was great fun! We went on a day boat trip on the Saint Elana that went to a small ‘Caribbean’ type un-inhabited island for a barbeque, with a couple of snorkelling stops as well, it was a good day, even though we were the only English couple on board! The nearest main town was Molyvos around 4 km away which has a great harbour with some really good fish restaurants & bars. We would therefore definitely recommend the Island of Lesvos to anyone looking for a traditional & typical ~Greek holiday’.
